Not Worth the Money
Lots of snow to go through and climb a hill with luggage. Lots of snow at front door. No shower gel in bathroom. No one at the horse Ranch for riding horses. It was misleading and ranch is operated by a different company. Not worth the money we paid. Didn’t feel very safe in remote location.

Our family of four stayed in one of the individual guest houses. The location is close to many of the golden circle sites. The view from the guesthouse is FANTASTIC!!!

A home away from home .
Though we stayed there for just one night we were impressed . It is one of the cottage rooms in the country side in the south coast . The scenery is beautiful around the cottage . The room we stayed was clean and well kept and spacious not to mention the clean spacious private bathroom . The kitchen in the cottage for tenants to share was also clean and well equipped . We cooked breakfast and dinner in the kitchen in order to save our cost of travelling .

Great choice!
Great views all around the property of mountains and horses in rolling fields. Clean, warm rooms, delicious Icelandic Breakfast, and easy access from Ring Road though feels rural. Even saw the Northern Lights!
